Ever since he was placed on waivers and finally moved out of Ottawa by the Senators last summer, goalie Mike Condon hasn’t been able to impress NHL teams in between the pipes. (Yeah, forget about him, Kyle Dubas ;)).
On Wednesday, Condon hit rock bottom in his career when he was let go by the Syracuse Crunch and pushed down to the Premier AA Hockey League (ECHL).
The 29-year-old goalie will join the Orlando Solar Bears. With the Crunch, Condon went 3-2-1, put up a 4.10 goals-against average and a .877 save percentage this season.
We have to admit that Condon spent most of his NHL career on the sidelines being plagued by injuries. His campaign was disrupted last year by a severe hip inflammation. He had to undergo treatment to transfer cells from his pelvic region to his hip, which had been operated on back in 2011.
In his NHL career, Condon has a record of 45-58-17, a 2.79 goals-against average and a .905 save percentage.
We wish him luck for this new chapter in his career and hope to see him back in the NHL one day.
